They say the second time is never as good as the first.How wrong!.This time we had the pleasure of staying two nights and that still wasnt long enough.We recently stayed at Braemer Lodge and quite frankly this place is streets ahead.Joy makes the place ten times more inviting.The views are far greater,and the over all experience is simply far and above Braemer.We are now planning trip number three.Cant wait to stay longer.Big thumbs up to Joy,Ross and Nelson and furry friends.
